Free Fiction Monday: Ghosts of Christmas Present

Alone for Christmas, Michela longs for the past, the future—anything but the present. The present holds pain, loneliness, longing, loathing. The present offers nothing but ghosts and nightmares about deeds that cannot be undone. To see her son again, Michela must face her ghosts on this Christmas Eve night—even if by doing so she becomes one herself.

“Ghosts of Christmas Present” by Stoker-award nominee Kristine Kathryn Rusch is available for $2.99 on Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, and in other e-bookstores. 

The free story will only be available for one week.  If you missed this one, click on the links above.  There’s another free story lurking somewhere around this site. Track it down, read, and enjoy.

    I loved this story. Skillfully written, of course — but what a sensibility, what a reading of the Christmas story, the Easter story, and the human heart.
